Our Tour is 25 this year! Come out to our gorgeous corner of Ontario and celebrate the boundless creativity and beauty our studios will be offering you this Thanksgiving weekend. Be sure to also plan a stop for a DEE-licious lunch at our local Brooke Valley School. Meals made with local ingredients and heart! Proceeds all go to support the school.

21 artists at 6 studio locations just west of Perth, give visitors the opportunity to purchase unique items directly from the makers. Studios are open Saturday – Monday, 10am -5pm. Visit the website for details and a downloadable map http://www.perthstudiotour.com.

Located within 25 kilometres of picturesque Perth, the Tour showcases one of Eastern Ontario’s finest selections of contemporary fine arts and crafts against a backdrop of Mother Nature at her best. The real heart of the Perth Autumn Studio Tour is of course, the creative process that allows us to produce the work we love.

The real heart of the Perth Autumn Studio Tour is of course, the creative process that allows us to produce the work we love.

Now celebrating it’s 23nd year, the Tour has added many new artisans for a total of 25 participants. Most are from the Perth area while others have been juried and invited to attend from other parts of Eastern Ontario. To minimize your driving time we’re presenting our works in 6 different rural studios clustered near Perth in very accessible and beautiful locations. There are demonstrations at many of the studio stops, and several feature outstanding garden walks.

Help us celebrate over 20 years being one of Ontario’s most prestigious studio tours!

Jewellery, etchings, canoes, pottery, furniture, stone sculpture, and wood carvings are only a few of the media you will see on the tour. Start at any location number, the routes are well marked. Besides the map provided, there are several important pieces of information on the details page.

The Perth Autumn Studio Tour is a very special showcase for contemporary fine crafts. In 1999 this extraordinary group of artisans was awarded a grant by the Ontario Arts Council in recognition of the high standard of work presented over the previous ten years. It was the only studio tour in Ontario to receive such an award.
